Following the devastating fire at the Tearoom and Shop on Glencaple Quay (Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland) back in September 2016, there have been some necessary changes to the provision for motorhomes visiting the historic Quay. (Google Maps link https://goo.gl/maps/vvB3HffRdaA2)
The Caerlaverock Community Association relies on donations to help maintain the area, so donations in the honesty box are much appreciated.

Glencaple has become an increasingly popular place for motorhomes to visit.
However, the place is shared with the community and two businesses who also need parking spaces. The local 6A bus also uses the Quay End as a turning point, folk come to the Quay End to fish and birdwatch and people come for the serenity and to take in the views. It is for use by all.
Bearing this in mind, it is politely requested that motorhomes use the far end of the Quay (see plan below). With considerate parking, there should be space for no fewer than 5 large motorhomes or lots of small campervans.
Caerlaverock Estate have generously offered the serviced site at Castle Corner (the former Castle Corner Campsite) less than 3 miles south of Glencaple, with at least 7 spaces for your use.
A secure honesty box will soon also be located here. Please use the online donation option until then.
Castle Corner offers litter disposal, drinking water tap, grey waste disposal, and chemical waste disposal.
